I believe with glibc you can write the gettext_l function in C++ like this:

  #define _GNU_SOURCE 1
  #include <locale.h>
  const char * gettext_l (const char *msgid, locale_t loc)
    locale_t oldlocale = uselocale (NULL);
    const char *result:
        uselocale (loc);
        result = gettext (msgid);
    catch (...)
        uselocale (oldlocale);
    return result;

This should work with glibc >= 2.4. (Older versions had a bug in the
gettext-internal cache.)
